, which has taken a bit of a pause in sandy's aftermath. with the election only a week away, the devastating east coast storm forced both candidates off the stump today. they focused, instead, on disaster relief, with mitt romney in ohio collecting canned foods and bottled water, and the president making a quick afternoon visit to red cross headquarters in washington. >> the most important msage i have for them is that america is is with you. we are standing behind you, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet. sa ifill: romney also spoke of the need to help storm victims.e >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. >> ifill: the romney campaign announced he will resume campaigning tomorrow. the president will remain off the trail throughsu wednesday. dn spent most of today at the offering federal support to officials in the affected areas. among them, new jersey's republican governor chris christie, a romney support

election of a presidential campaign and what they repeatedly say they're going to do does predict what they're going to try to do, regardless of what they've done in their past or what they've said in the past. i would predict that if governor romney is elected president, he would support, nominate justices who would be more likely to overturn roe v. wade than would barack obama. i think that it is clear, however, that he would not do anything to outlaw abortion in cases of rape, incest or life of the mother being endangered. i think we know that from the exchanges to date. and so you can say he's had more positions across time, and his position -- you can mark different points in the calendar across his life. >> i do think that the public, by and large, perceives the fact that he has made more 180 degree turns than a whirling dervish. i read this comment online at "the washington post," a reader who said that, "romney has thrown lbaugh, rick perry, allen west and all the other tea party people under a freight train by essentially saying he would govern as president obama governs." that's w

are felt by most americans and getat re-elected and survive politically. >>if you listen to many public officials over the last 20 or 30 years as they've stted to recognize that inequality has grown, typically when they'll say is this is a result just of economic change. it's a esult of globalizaon changeso in technology that hav advantaged the educated of those with high skills at the expense of the uneducated. and there clearly there is some truth to this story that education matters more on determining economic rewards. but the more we looked at this, the less satisfied we were that explanation. that it couldn't explain why the economic gains were so concentrated within a very small subset of the educated people in american society. i mean 29% of americans now have college degrees but much, much smaller percentage of americans were benefiting from this economic transformation. >> well as we speak i can hear all of those free-marketers out they say "come on, piers -- come on hacker, it is the global economy. it's the cheap labor overseas. it's those high-technology skills that you say
affected the national election. in the sense that the romney momentum is temporarily, certainly was temporarily halted. the benghazi thing has been knocked off thfront pages, and the president is putting himself in the role of president as head of state, rather than the campaign mode, which i don't think is effective, i think it's the real toss-up and this interruption has helped the president. >> matt -- political harmony before the three. >> chris kiss tee is emotional, reacting in the moment, he tereally cares about his state d people. he tweeted that the jeey shore, his childhood was gone. this is a very wrenching moment for him as it is for the people who were living through this in new jersey and new york. and the president is doing his job, and itth a time when government s been under assault in the political arena, and it gives the president a chance to show that government can have a positive influence in people's lives. government is working here. the states could not respond fully on their own, ey need the help, and so i think this is a moment that i wish we could cap
